DSC_7267I am Assistant Professor in the Political Science department at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. After completing my PhD at the Department of Political Science at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in June 2017, I worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Gettysburg College until 2019.

You can find my CV here.

My research interests lie at the intersection of International Law/International Organization and domestic politics, with a focus on the influence both spheres have on one another. Substantively, my research has examined these themes in the human rights realm. My book, State Behavior and the International Criminal Court: Between Resistance and Cooperation, is forthcoming with Routledge in June 2022. It charts compliance and resistance to the Court as a continuum and seeks to explain these state behaviors as well as the Court’s response to them. You can read more about it under research.

My research has been supported through a Small Research Grant from the American Political Science Association, a Dissertation Research Improvement Grant from the National Science Foundation and a research grant from the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy. My work has been published in the International Journal of Transitional Justice, the International Journal of Human Rights, Journal of Human Rights, and the Journal of International Organizations Studies.

I teach classes on International Relations, including human rights, international law, and international organizations. You can read more about my teaching experiences and look at some of my syllabi here.
